About Petra Fischer
Petra, the German owner (she speaks German, English, Spanish and French) has lived and worked as a journalist in Mexico for nearly 30 years. When authorities began to spruce up the decaying Centro Histórico more than ten years years ago, she bought two apartments on the top floor of a stately building between the Zocalo and Bellas Artes. Before moving in, she totally remodeled, modernized and redecorated both properties – one to live in herself, the other to put up friends, relatives and paying guests when visiting Mexico.

This was a wonderful, clean , safe and well appointed apartment in the best location. Petra is a delightful owner who provides a wealth of information. Could not be better!
Views, Hospitality, Wonderful Stay!
We are grateful to Petra for welcoming us and providing tips, tours, humor, transportation, and a beautiful place to stay. We loved the views from the penthouse, your walking tour, all the restaurant and neighborhood recommendations, the trip to Teotihuacan, and watching the James Bond movie.
We were a group on 7 (3 couples, one 9-year old) and all fit well, some shared bathrooms, did take Petra up on the pads for the beds, and the bathrooms had plenty of hot water. Petra and Ceci helped with every possible request that crossed our minds!
Hope to be back before too long. Thank you so much for your hospitality.
Wonderful location! Spacious!
It was a perfect set up for our group of five, each having private rooms and baths and still having a private visiting area to have our coffee or happy hour. Petra was very friendly and helpful without being the least bit instructive. We would definitely stay here again!
The apartment was in a perfect location to enjoy the historic center of the city.
The apartment was perfect for our family, but what really made our stay memorable was the incredible hospitality of Petra and her staff. Her warm welcome and easy access made our first trip to MC seamless. Petra’s restaurant recommendations, setting up our pyramid tour, airport transportation and setting up our incredible dinner with Ceci made our vacation.
Thank you, Craig, to you and your lovely family for staying with us and for taking the time to write such a great review. Hope to see you again - if not in Mexico then in Alaska. From your descriptions, Alaska must be a wonderful place for a holiday for us -- just as Mexico was for you.
Wonderful Accomodations - Close to Everything
Prior to our arrival:
Petra was extremely responsive and very informative on what was located immediately around the penthouse, offered site seeing recommendations based on what our interests were, and provided recommendations for available drivers to take us too and from the out of town excursions. There was so much information exchanged and shared that upon arriving, that we wasted no time in trying to 'figure things out' during our stay.
Arrival and During our Stay:
We were welcomed by Petra and Ceci and immediately provided with a brief tour of the penthouse, which has everything you would need for a short or long term stay. Everything in the penthouse provided the comfort we needed after very long day's of sightseeing, while everything you may need (ATM's, convenience stores, shopping, etc.) are all within a very short walking distance.
We were again greeted by Petra and Ceci prior to departing and asked about our stay. Further recommendations for driver or taxi service to the airport were again provided to us which made everything from our arrival to departure nothing less than a flawless process.
Everything about this trip was perfect. The hospitality, accommodations, and location are all what make this place a true gem in Mexico City that everyone should have the opportunity to experience.
The perfect place
I took my grand-daughter to Mexico City to introduce her to the beautiful Mexican culture and to meet relatives. My nephew, nieces and sister also joined us. I really wanted this to be a memorable and perfect trip. And it was! Petra's home was the perfect house with the perfect location and Petra was the perfect host.When arranging the reservation she was in constant communication with me making sure every thing was in place. She arranged for the driver to provide transportation to and from the airport and she was at the house to greet us when we arrived. We were able to arrange tours with her which made it so easy for us. We knew we were in good hands. She has a wonderful cook who helped us with a very special dinner for our relatives. I have rented many homes through vrbo which were very nice, but this home was a jewel perfected by Petra!
How wonderful that all of you enjoyed your stay. We also had fun helping you with your family celebration. Just having you next door was a pleasure. And your review! Thank you so much! Do come back....
